Yup, I keep them all in the fridge from the moment I bring them home from the hospital until right before putting them in my pen. I just put a brand new ampule into my pen so I guess I will see in ~3 hours, will let you all know.
I go running everyday, that is pretty much all I can do at this time of the year (freezing in here).

Actually, over yesterday, I ate 1/8th of what I would usually eat but kept injecting the exact same amount as if I had eaten. And yet my numbers hadn't gone below 250, not even for a while.

That is what I thought at first, but I thought that honeymoon ending means just ~20% increase in insulin amounts - what I am experiencing is almost doubling my amounts with not being able to eat at all to keep myself below 300

I did, not having any as of now, will be sure to check regularly though. Oral meds, what are those?

#Update as of 29/12/12

The situation has been like this for 2 days now. I am injecting insulin and decided to not eat a single carb till I know what's up. Waking up I measured myself to have 15/270, two hours later after injecting 18 units, the number has increased to 15.5/280 and I had not eaten a single thing (nothing at all). I made sure to pick the new ampule from a whole different batch, so it can't possible be bad insulin

I am going to call my endo the first thing in the new week, to see if they can provide me with some help.

Is it possible your liver is dumping glucose if your not eating anything at all?

Seems like my body has some sort of strong insulin resistance. I have decided not to eat any carbs (just veggies and meat) till the issue gets sorted out. Before lunch I measured myself to have 5.9/110. Even the smallest amount of carb, however, kicks my numbers high up.

Now that your BG is more normal, be careful how much insulin you take. When your sugars are high it takes more insulin than you think it would to lower it. Now that are are much lower you should not need as much insulin to maintain. Just keep checking your sugars.

oral meds are pills used to do various things such as help with insulin resistance, stop liver from dumping glucose, and try to get pancreas to produce insulin....lots of different pills to help. My sugars dis what yours are doing when I left the honeymoon period but I never used much high amounts of insulin. I would all my dr. The type of insulin they have you on might not be right for you either. Why are you using?
